    The Justice of the Peace Bench in Maricopa County and the Presiding Family Court Judge in Maricopa County propose adding Rule 35f to the Arizona Rules of Protective Order Procedure to address the handling of Injunctions Against Harassment that include children and may affect matters pending existing family court orders or matters.

    Would amend Ariz. Rule of Protective Order Procedure 35 to forbid courts issuing Injunctions Against Harassment orders from including minor children if it would or may impact a family court order or action involving the same children.

    Honorable Wendy A. Million
    Magistrate, Tucson City Court
    103 E. Alameda
    Tucson, AZ 85701
    Chair, Committee on the Impact of Domestic Violence and the Courts (CIDVC)
    Staff: kradwanski@courts.az.gov
    Telephone: (602) 452-3360

    The Committee on the Impact of Domestic Violence and the Courts (CIDVC) discussed this petition at its February 11, 2020, meeting. CIDVC members had several concerns about this proposal. First, the proposed rule includes no emergency provision for a limited jurisdiction court to issue an Injunction Against Harassment (IAH) when the safety of a child is at issue. Not all limited jurisdiction courts are co-located with or located near superior court buildings. For some plaintiffs, the time of the day or the distance from the superior court may be impediments to filing a petition that involves a child’s safety. Next, while a parent can file for temporary emergency orders in family court, a parent will not necessarily be aware of that option and may waste valuable time at a limited jurisdiction court, only to be sent to a superior court that may be far away. Finally, members had procedural questions, asking how the superior court can take jurisdiction over parties to a limited jurisdiction court’s IAH when the superior court does not otherwise have jurisdiction over the parties to the IAH. There is also a presumption that the limited jurisdiction court will know that there is a parenting time order between one of the parties to the IAH and another person who is not part of the IAH case.
